I graduated from Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas in December of 2007. I did my undergraduate education at Cochise College for a year here in Sierra Vista and the rest at the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ.
Choosing Chiropractic As My Career Path
Considering my family’s background in Chiropractic, everyone always assumed I would follow in my father’s footsteps. When I was a child, I spent lots of time with my parents in the office and was able to observe many health benefits resulting from care. I knew it would be a wonderful profession for me, but wasn’t sure if that was what I really wanted to do. My first thought was architecture, but as I got closer to starting at the University of Arizona, I decided to follow my father’s footsteps.
One of the reasons that led me to pursue this profession involved a really good friend of mine growing up. My friend had horrible asthma problems. It was sometimes to the point that he would have to use his inhaler if he walked too fast. He always had inhalers strategically placed all over the place so that he would always be able to find one fast. Being that I grew up with adjustments being a regular part of life, I convinced him to come into my dad’s office and get adjusted once to see if it helped. I did have to do a lot of convincing, but I finally drove him into the office and had him get adjusted. The results were remarkable. He completely changed from a kid who couldn’t do any real physical activity to a kid who went on to play football, volleyball, and run cross country in high school. The biggest part of it all, and it was something that he was glad to tell you, was the fact that since his first adjustment, he never used an inhaler again. He has gone on to join the military, and he is still free of asthma problems to this day.
During my internship at Parker College, I was able to see such outstanding differences made in people’s lives resulting from care as well as a few miracle cases, experiencing them personally and through observation.
I have always had a strong support system when it has come to my chosen profession. Being that I have a great-grandfather, grandfather, two uncles, and a father who were all Chiropractors, I feel that the knowledge I have learned from them and their own experiences has greatly influenced me.
The reason I am a Chiropractor is my overall belief that the body has potential above our wildest expectations, and if we can find a way to tap into that potential then everything in our body will function as it was designed to and allow us to live while being truly healthy.
I look forward to getting to know you and provide care for you and your families as my father has done here for the past 25 years. Contact Inline Chiropractic Group today to make an appointment.
